Cité Soleil (English: Sun City) is an extremely impoverished and densely populated slum located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  Cité Soleil originally developed as a shanty town and grew to an estimated 200,000 to 400,000 residents, the majority of whom live in extreme poverty. The area is generally regarded as one of the largest and poorest slums of the Western Hemisphere. The area has virtually no sewers and has a poorly maintained open canal system that serves as its sewage system. Half of the houses of Cité Soleil are made of cement with a metal roof, half are made completely of scavenged material. An estimated 60 to 70% of houses have no access to a latrine.

Citè Soleil is home to Healing Haiti's Hope Church and School located in one of the poorest parts of Citè Soleil, Soleil 17.

Imagine the children of Cite Soleil having a place to know God, to be safe, to dream of a better life, to sit and breathe in hope. Imagine. Today we imagine no longer.
